I HATE CLIFFHANGER! Ok now that I have that out of my system. But at least I knew that going in and read it anyway. This is an extraordinarily well written and thought out book. I found myself reading it straight through. That being said though since when really sucked.
This is Novi and Fallon’s story. Novi is nothing more than a simple bar maid. Or so they would have you believe. She is actually so much more. When she is taken as one of the Harem instead of a cook. She lets them know of the mist

This is so good!!! I'm happy to have read about the dark elves, the spin-off of Emigh Cannaday's Annika Brisbey series! So glad they don't enslave humans like I thought they did, from reading the other series. Although they don't seem to have any reservations enthralling them to get their way.

I absolutely adored Novi! She was hilarious, and bright. She reminded me of Annika because she seemed a lot like a "modern girl" (as the Estonian elves call humans from Earth) with her s

Oh my stars loved it

Really enjoyed reading about the dark elves. Felt it could have gone into more detail re characters and world building. But overall really enjoyef and cannot wait for next book. And to also see how Dillon and Talvi link up.

I loved this book! The 5 stars are primarily for the ending. It isn’t a really good ending – as in a happy ending – but it isn’t the worst of all possible endings either, though it looks for a bit as if that is where it is going. And it definitely leaves a lot of room for sequels, which you know are coming anyway.

The Novi Navarro Chronicles are a spinoff of Emigh Cannaday’s The Annika Brisby Series. It is not necessary to read The Annika Brisby Series to understand and enjoy this book – but it

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author to give a voluntary honest review. This review contains only my own thoughts and opinions of this book. First and foremost, thank you Emigh Cannaday for the opportunity and generosity, and of course for a thrilling read.

Prince of Persuasion had most of what I enjoy in a story; drama, romance, complexity, adventure and betrayal. All of this to make sure I enjoyed the story from start until finish and I sure did. However, as much as I w

Can I tell you all how excited I was to read this book. I love fantasy. I love romance. When there is a book that brings the two genres’ together, I almost always pick it up to read. When I was approached to review Prince of Persuasion, I accepted immediately. I am glad I did because this book was fantastic.

I loved Novi in this book. She took nothing from anyone. Well, except her boss/landlord and that was because she had to. She did try to fix the administrative mistake, but no one would listen

Prince of Persuasion is the first book in the Novi Navarro chronicles, which is a spin-off series from the Annika Brisby books by Emigh Cannaday.

Here we are introduced to Novi, an independant, hard working, intelligent and outspoken young human woman of the lower classes who is stuck in her job thanks to a money-hungry boss and bad circumstance. She wants more out of life than smelling like week-old mutton chop and being swindled out of her wages, but has no way out of her miserable existence.

Beautiful storytelling

I’ve been searching for a fantasy series that hooked me completely and Emigh Canmaday didn’t disappoint in Prince of Persuasion. I loved the snarky, independent and fierce main character Novi who is nothing but a simply barmaid dreaming of a better life away from her slumlord boss however it takes a turn when her best friend urges Novi to go with her to Blackwood Castle to work as a kitchen maid. Instead she becomes the crown prince Fallon’s concubine.

This is the start of a new series by Emigh Cannaday and it is very different than her other one Annika Brisby series........ It is also about elves and humans and another dimension. I found it to be a very compelling story. There is a great sadness to it the inequality between the lives of the elves and the humans. The variance in the conditions they live under and their lifespans. I cant say more than that because of spoilers. You will have to read and judge the story for yourselves. The author ...more

This book was sad, intense, sexy, and amazing! I loved reading about the Dark Elves and as usual Emigh Cannaday's characters were very well done. Making me love or hate them depending on what side of the good or bad coin they fell on. And unfortunately for Novi when it comes to a royal family there is always some bad to go around.
As a fan of Cannaday's Annika Brisby series I especially enjoyed how bits and pieces overlapped giving a bigger glimpse of the world I've come to know so fondly. Thoug
This is a spin off from one of my favourite book series and Im not sure about it just yet. I did enjoy the book and I think as the stories begin to intertwine it will become great but the two Princes just didn't hold as much fascination for me as Talvi (the love interest in the Brisby books).

I also found this more political and a heavier read than the first Brisby book - although as you progress into that series it does take a darker turn, the initial world and character building is light and fu

As an ARC member, I was privileged to read Prince of Persuasion. Emigh you have done it again! The story line pulls you in from the first page and holds you until the last.
The emerging love story and the traumas of past experiences make this book relatable and compelling. Fallon and Novi move the reader through emotions of love, frustration, compassion, joy, anger and betrayal. If ever two were meant to be, it’s these two. I’m looking forward to continuing Fallon and Novi’s journey. Thank you E

I love all of Emigh Cannaday's books as she has such great character development and world building. Novi Navarro, the main character, was a human girl that was both strong willed and smart. However, I felt frustrated that she felt like she was not good enough for Prince Fallon. Prince Fallon was a good ruler, but was not very persuasive in my opinion. Novi and Fallon had great chemistry, but I find their relationship a bit confusing at times. However, the family drama, potential war, and unique ...more

I resist a lot to start this book because I was mad that Emigh had started another series without finishing Annika Brisby series, that I'm desperately waiting for, but, of course, I couldn't resist it and I'm glad I didn't because she did it again. Fantastic book, fantastic story that I couldn't put down until I finished, and now I'm suffering because the next book is too far away...

Thank you Emigh for this amazing book and HURRY UP, please, because I need more of this...

Oh my gosh, wow!

Prince of Persuasion is a fantabulous story! You get a great mixture of a badass Cinderella thrown into a Romeo and Juliet situation (you know star cross lovers, betrayal, revenge, and mayhem) in a fantasy world filled with princes, concubines, magic and much more.

It is set in the same world as the Annika Brisby stories but I didn't feel like you would gain or lose anything if you haven't read them yet. It would work well as a stand a lone novel.

Incredible ‼ vividly written! Believable characters in a make believe world that you can really sink your teeth in! ! I cannot wait to see where the journey of Novi and Fallon takes. I know when I turned the page that read “Epilogue “, I wanted to scream “No! No! No!” I need “More! More! More!”..

Novi is a spark of fresh air to Fallon, who is weighted down with the responsibilities of the monarchy. The characters are exciting to read about, the trials and tribulations that Novi endured before she wound up in Fallon's world. The world the author creates is interesting to read about. I found this an exciting book to read and can't wait to find out what happens next.

Great Novel

This is a really interesting read, with surprisingly more character depth than I expected for a romance. This is not a stand alone romance novel, but sets up for a true love story where the characters face real world problems that aren’t magically solved for a quick HEA. Can’t wait for the next book!

This bitter sweet long awaited first book in a 3 book serial did not disappoint. As the spin off from the Annika Brisby series it is naturally about elves but this time we see their darker cousins. Beautifully written, intoxicating read.

OMG - I LOVED this book, i laughed at the banter between Novi and Fallon, I cried too, but mostly this book left me with a big fat grin on my face, I cant wait for the second book and wish i could give this one 10 stars. Love Emigh Cannaday.
10 Star thumbs up!

I love the world that Emigh Cannaday has created in this new series. The characters are well developed, the world of the dark elves and the way they relate to the humans and others in their kingdom is very detailed. Plus the unlikely love affair touched my heart.

Well written but kinda boring

Don't get me wrong it's a fair story but it lacked entertainment. I skimmed this novel out of curiosity; I literally needed to know what would happen and at the end of it all, it was simply a long introduction.

More than a barmaid

This author never disappoints! When opportunity knocks, you'd be crazy not to go for it. Castle life, courtesans, dysfunctional families, mistaken identities, compulsion, and schemes... a creatively woven story that you will not want to put down.

Emigh Cannaday has done it again! Prince of Persuasion is another fantastic series! She has created another world to get lost in. I can’t tell you how much I loved this book. I can’t wait for whatever she comes up with next! I am voluntarily leaving my honest review after reading this arc.
